Just to fill you in, in my part of the world. A local hay hoo was thatching/power raking a 10,000 yard today with a mantis tiller walking backwards. About died laughen!!! A few hours we went by the yard again and he was still at it! Just wandering what you guys see at this time of year!

Sounds like the people in this part of the state, doesn't it?

BTW What town you live in? You aren't the one from Sheldon that won the Big Block Party are you?

I saw 3 adults in a fruitless mulberry tree doing a hack job attempting to Pollard(cut back to nubs) it when it has allready leafed out using a corded circlular saw. There are so many things wrong with this, I don't know where to start.

I can top that meets1...I had a customer do that to an 18,000+ lawn 2 years ago. I think that it took him about 4 to 5 hours to do it.

I had a gal ask me today to spread buffalo seed by hand....10,000 sq ft worth. I told her I had a verticutter, but no way to spread the seed by hand...lol. She said she might just do it herself.
